French writer, a journalist. After covering a story of the experiences of the dying, he wrote a best-seller, "The Source of Darkness," describing case studies in the psychological aspects of death, 1986.

The son of a father who had French, Italian and Belgian ancestry and to a German mother, Van Eersel became a reporter and author. For a long time the leading reporter for "Actuel" magazine, he segued into the chief editor of the magazine "Nouvelles clés" and the director of "Clés," a collection published by Albin Michel. His investigations regularly bring him to the borderline of the ongoing transformation in the world.
